Willie the Hero Quaker Parrot Gets More Props From the NY Post

shortycloseup100-791900The New York Post ran a nice story last week entitled “Hero Pets Who Saved Human Children,” in which Willie the Quaker Parrot got some well-earned props for saving a 2-year old from choking on a Pop-Tart back in 2006.

Willie’s fast and life-saving response to a crisis has done a lot to improve the image of Quaker Parrots, which in the past haven’t always been portrayed in a positive light due to their penchant for annoying utility companies.  It’s nice to see the species (which the Post correctly notes is “a particularly intelligent and chatty breed that loves to clown around”) get a bit of praise.
